"Still, it’s important to the way Silicon Valley works that such behavior not be tolerated."

Who are you to say what is or is not tolerated in SV?

Sam, you and YC seem like good people, but language like that makes me not want to be your fans.

It sounds very elitist.




Fair point, I don't like the way that reads either. I deleted it until I have time to rephrase it.


>Who are you to say what is or is not tolerated in SV?

What makes it even more funny is that these are actual Silicon Valley people. From 10,000 feet, this is a very Silicon Valley-type story.


Do you think being a leader in a community does not entitle you to say what you believe is acceptable behaviour in that community?
